I'm looking for a turnout blanket for a little guy (13.3hh). He's built slightly bigger and has a short neck and back..pretty small withers..
He's had a problem with blankets slipping back on him. We've tried a few different blankets, even ones with extra velcro straps on the neck, and they've all done the same.
Has anyone had this problem and found a blanket that worked for this kind of horse?
It can't have too long of a drop, or else it'll swallow the poor little guy's legs.

Here's a picture of him to kind of give a better idea of his build:

Lacey has a similar sort of build to your guy and she was having the same problem with her old blanket. It always ended up smooshed up behind her withers...

Here's a picture of her to compare:



(she was being my golf caddy, only horse caddy)

And I got her a Weatherbeeta Landa Freestyle blanket (I don't think they come in sizes smaller than a 69 but a similar style might work for you) and we haven't had any issues with it sliding back at all. I really like this blanket, it hasn't given her any rubs (and she's been wearing it 24/7 since October with small breaks every few days) and it doesn't slip anywhere, not even side to side.



Good luck! He's super cute. =)
